      I think you can preserve humans right now but there is a large amount of ethics laws that go along with the topic.

      The problem is that we cannot bring someone back to life, all we have is the technology to preserve the body. However scientific research which allows you to bring someone back to life is also carefully guarded by ethical laws.

      I think you can actually get cryopreserved already. I think the devil of the details is being ‘reanimated’- which as it stands, currently can’t be done. Don’t quote me on this though.
